I started learning how to crochet about a week ago -- a crochet-a-long (CAL) on Maybe Matilda's blog prompted me to give it a go. I used some grey worsted wool for my practice piece, mainly because it easily allowed me to see the stitches and what it was exactly I was doing.
The CAL is using a pattern for a cowl from Lion Brand Yarn, but since I dislike cowls and wouldn't ever wear one, I decided I had to give something more my style a try.
I fell in LOVE with the Bobble Baby Blanket that Maybe Matilda made. So, I did a little digging, a little research, and I concocted my own Bobble Scarf pattern. I emailed it to Maybe Matilda and she was a dear and helped me make sure it was viable.
And away I went ...
So far I have 3 inches crocheted. I'm using a bamboo yarn from Bernat that is simply gorgeous! It's soft and supple and so ... so ... touchable! It's going to make an awesome scarf! I'm so excited about it!
